Texas Roadhouse for steaks, Luce's for Italian (it's a small family owned place here in SC - not really a chain), Popeye's for chicken. Bob Evans for general stuff. Other wise it's my kitchen.

There is a smaller chain that poped up by me called The Pub. They have a great beer selection, and really good food. Fish and chips, fried calamari, beef and sauerkraut are some. They also let you create your own half and half beer. The most recent I made was Guiness and Dogfish 60 min. Awesome.

Because of food sensitivities and allergies, we don't eat out...but there was a restaurant (not fast food, in the "St. Catherine street area" of Montreal that had "to die for" steak sandwiches...). Melt-in-your-mouth...my mouth waters whenever I think of those steak sandwiches...

Where is by you, Megamark?
I've never heard of that chain either.

The first time I had fish tacos at a restaurant, it was at Rubio's in San Diego, and it was made with fish sticks (you could order up and get other, non-breaded fish or shell fish tacos/burritos, but the basic was made with ... fish sticks). The first time I ever had a fish taco it was made by my San Diego friends who were visiting, and they used breaded fish filets, joking all the way, and that's where they learned to make them. Hades, any time a guest makes ME dinner, I'm a happy hostess!

My favorite restaurant chain would have to be Rudy River Steakhouse. I'm not sure how popular the chain is on the east coast, but here in the west there are a number of places. It is so cozy and quiet!! They have great sourdough bread!! Love it!

My least favorite would be Ihop!! Sorry, but I don't see what is so great about their pancakes...

Although we don't have any within a 30 minute drive, I've never complained when looking for fast food and coming upon a Boston Market. Rotisserie chicken, some steamed veggies, and a hunk of bread. Panera usually has good bread and okay sandwiches/salads if you choose the ones with actual diced chicken and not meat-jello deli meat. Nothing memorable, but edible in a pinch. I'll eat a chicken, pepper, onion, mushroom, and cheese sub from D'Angelos now and then, and I'll get a BLT from Subway if I must. Once a year or so I'll grab a cone at Friendly's take-out window.

If I'm forced to eat at a place that hangs stuff on the wall (Applebees, Chilis, TGIF, etc.) I tend to order a burger. I can usually hit it with enough ketchup to get it down the hatch with a beer that is almost always cold and fresh (due to the volume they go through). I try to visit these "Flair" places no more than once a year (and never by my own free choice).

When I was little I liked Wendy's French Fries. Just for the heck of it I tried them a year or two ago and was very disappointed.
